GHWIC BALAC: Great Lakes Area Cookbook
We are seeking traditional recipes from our Tribal families and communities of the Great Lakes/Bemidji Area.
Good food is essential to healthy, strong tribal nations. Having enough good food to eat – food security – is just one element of food sovereignty. Food Sovereignty is the right for indigenous nations to define their own diets and shape food systems that are congruent with their spiritual and cultural values.
Many tribal communities are regaining control of their food supply. They’re growing traditional foods, plants and medicines and collaborating with the federal government to retain rights for hunting and gathering. We want to celebrate your recipes that support our history, culture and tradition.
Supported by American Indian Health & Family Services, Bay Mills Indian Community, Keweenaw Bay Indian Community, Lac Vieux Desert, Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians, and Good Health and Wellness in Indian Country.
